Default Nick 04 Rubicon project

Stock as I bought it 3 years ago


after less then a year I lifted the jeep putting a 6 inch full traction with 35's and many other goodies.



just this past Monday my jeep was finished with what I'm calling phase 2 of my build up. Here are some pictures of what she looks like during the build and now. Want to give thanks to Unlimited off road and the help of Chop to make it all happen.

jeep now 2 inch springs, sinister high line fenders, 37" kevlars, and rear suspension was all re-done due to antirock and 5 inch rear stretch.... etc











pumped to get out and wheel it.

Beautiful rig. I like the corner guards painted to match, need to do that to mine. I really like the hood too, did you modify it to get that look or was it purchased like that?
It looks like it will be a damn nice trail rig for you.

Thanks Craig,

Actually the axles im currently running are stock rubicon axles. I know Im right on the edge with these axles but this is my build that is taking a little time to finish. I just graduated college and once I find a good job I plan on running Currie axles front and rear with about a 63" wheel base. I do have wheel spacers on now so im not sure on exact width.

Thanks Nick. I was thinking it had either Currie or Waggy axles. I must have been thinking about one of the other projects there.

I love the stance. I'm shooting for a very similar stance on my '05 LJ.
